Psalm 149

Psalm 149

Praise the Lord.

Sing a new song to the Lord.
    Sing praise to him in the assembly of his faithful people.

Let Israel be filled with joy because God is their Maker.
    Let the people of Zion be glad because he is their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing.
    Let them make music to him with harps and tambourines.
The Lord takes delight in his people.
    He awards with victory those who are humble.
Let his faithful people be filled with joy because of that honor.
    Let them sing for joy even when they are lying in bed.

May they praise God with their mouths.
    May they hold in their hands a sword that has two edges.
Let them pay the nations back.
    Let them punish the people of the earth.
Let them put the kings of those nations in chains.
    Let them put their nobles in iron chains.
Let them carry out God’s sentence against those nations.
    This will bring glory to all his faithful people.

Praise the Lord.

詩篇 149

以色列要讚美上帝

1你們要讚美耶和華!
要向耶和華唱新歌,
在祂忠心子民的聚會中頌讚祂!
願以色列因他的造物主而歡喜,
願錫安的百姓因他們的君王而快樂。
願他們跳舞讚美祂的名,
擊鼓彈琴歌頌祂。
因為耶和華喜愛祂的子民,
祂賜尊榮給謙卑的人,
使他們得勝。
願祂忠心的子民因所得的榮耀而歡樂,
願他們躺臥在床上的時候也歡唱。
6-7 願他們高聲頌讚耶和華,
手握兩刃利劍向列國復仇,
在列邦中施行懲罰,
用鐵鏈捆綁他們的君王,
用鐵銬鎖住他們的首領,
按他們的罪狀審判他們。
這就是祂忠心的子民所得的榮耀。
你們要讚美耶和華!
